Afonso Alves "open" to Middlesbrough offer

Heerenveen striker Afonso Alves is keen on a move to Middlesbrough.

The 26-year-old Brazilian was top scorer in the Dutch Eredivisie last season with 34 goals and says he could move to Boro after they bid a reported £6.1million for his services.

"They are seriously interested in me," Alves told De Telegraaf. "Middlesbrough have shown this, too, with their offer.

"For such a big club and for the Premier League, I am always open and the first talks are really hopeful. That will not be the problem."
